“NOT a place to learn or for women.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I live nearby so I stopped in to ask about advertised lessons. I was told they didn't have anyone to give lessons at this time but they hadn't stopped advertising because they hoped to have someone in the future. I asked about renting clubs and trying it out because I do have a little experience I just wanted to learn more in depth. They only clubs they had to rent were one set of men's club for someone about 6'5. The supposed "pro" I talked to was rude and I got the idea it was because I was female. I wasn't too sure about that until it was suggested maybe I should ask my husband to help me, I told them I wasn't married, and he laughed and said "well this isn't a dating service then". Single women do golf, and it doesn't mean you are looking for a husband! I was very offended and asked for a manager who conveniently was not available then or any of the multiple times I called. I was suggest ladies staying away from there.

“Play ing golf on a public course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I'm a terrible golf player but those I played with pointed out that this course used to be one of the best in the Southwest. It was allowed to deteriorate but is now coming back to its former status

..Very cool spot to play if you just play one course in El Paso. Im not a great golfer, but enjoyed all the rabbits and other interesting wildlife running around. Really great "bang for your buc".

“Nice Course in the Desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Good layout, nice pro shop, and reasonable prices. It can get crowded during the summer weekend period. A tee time is def. reccommended.
